    Finally I got WRX

    whats good WRX people... I just got my new black 2013 wrx. currently has 4500 miles. Current mods are COBB SF Intake with box, COBB down pipe, COBB AP, and SPT exhaust. Anyone have any recommendations on what i should do next.

    Thanks

    What are your goals? Do you want more power, better handling, better sound?

    Better tires and a custom alignment are good for handling. Also sway bars and end links if you are trying to reduce body roll. Stainless steel brake lines and better brake fluid are great brake upgrades. Power mods are really dependent on how much money you want to spend. A good custom protune would probably get you a little more power and get the car running more "reliably," but it might not be worth it if your car accepted the COBB maps ok. Have you been doing data logging on the car?

    Also, short throw shifter and bushings are a great upgrade to reduce shift slop (kartboy is good).

    My bad i forgot about the short throw... i have a SPT shifter. regarding the data, I have not logged any data. Still really unsure how to use the AP. I just installed those parts on thursday.... MACH V in VA did the work. I know i probably sound stupid when it comes to this stuff but im new to the WRX world. How do i log the data from the AP ?

    thanks once again

    Have you flashed the stage 2 tune yet? Logging data is as easy as hooking up the AP and selecting the data parameters you want to look at and then hitting the log selection. I would recommend flashing to stage 2 asap if you have the DP on there right now.
